“I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.” Isaiah 48:10
The Christian Addictions Recovery Ministry (CHARM) Society is a lay ministry dedicated to:
“…returning the recovery conversation to it’s Biblical roots.”
We rely upon the Father, Son and Holy Spirit as the cornerstone for long term addictions healing; as well as the Holy Bible, liturgical worship, and Twelve Step programs for strength in community.
Unlike other recovery programs based on medicine or psychology, we are developing faith focused programming using prayer and scripture to develop a more meaningful relationship with God, and each other.
Addiction affects not only the using addict or practicing alcoholic, but also their families and society as a whole. In response, we are building a resource base for all those who suffer.
“12 Steps through the Bible”
This small group discussion group is based on an (AA approved) adaptation of the Twelve Steps as presented in our “12 Steps Through the Bible Writing Guide”. These relevant questions and scriptural passages focus on building a foundational relationship with the Triune God.
The spiritual healing process as outlined in the 12 Steps: admission of the need to rely on God, an honest examination of conscience, confession, restitution and ministry with others who still suffer, becomes the cornerstone for long term success in recovery.
This series part of the ‘in-house’ programming at a Christian recovery centre in the Greater Vancouver area of BC, and has been offered as an open discussion group at St. Anthony’s Parish in West Vancouver, before the Covid 19 restrictions were implemented.
If you would like more information about how to access a scriptually focused Twelve Step group can be formed at your Parish or treatment centre, please contact us.
